Cupcakes & Christmas by RJ Scott Blog Tour

Cupcakes & Christmas by RJ Scott

The story of long nights in a wintry mountain hotel, a baking show with secrets, a snowman called Jeremy, and finding the greatest love of all.

After winning season four of ratings hit the World’s Best Baking Show, Brody Thomas had become a sought-after cake maker to the stars. Happily married, he dreamed of a bright future, but his perfect life imploded when he discovered that his husband had done nothing but lie to him. A year later, Brody is mid-divorce, and his life has been turned upside down, so being part of the WBBS charity event is excellent timing. He’s sure it will give him time away from home and space to get his head straight, only he never expected to meet the man of his dreams in a snowy Alberta.

Winning season one of WBBS gave Justin Mallory a chance to outrun the demons of a childhood lost in the foster system. He’s a social media influencer, with millions of followers, and works every hour to make money that equals security for the rest of his life. His marketing team signs him up for the WBBS Christmas charity show, but he’s convinced he’ll fall at the first hurdle. Only, after a few days in the competition, his worry isn’t that he’ll be the first to leave, it’s that he’ll lose his heart to a rival baker, Brody.

This was a very welcome early Christmas treat and I highly recommend it to you. A group of winning bakers from previous series of a bake-off show in the USA are pitched against each other in a Christmas special. Already this was shaping up to be a must read – I love thinking about what the machinations behind the scenes might be when we watch these shows. The cattiness, the disasters, the requirements for putting on a popular TV show. And then here we get a chance at romance... two unexplored mutual crushes which were never expected to see the light of day may just implode, or may give two winning bakers a chance of real love.

Justin, who won season one, has an influencer lifestyle, employing a team to ensure that he capitalises on his 'brand' and fills his bank account, turns out to be someone who has a deep need to ensure he has a stable future. He has avoided later winners as he is not entirely sure that he should have won and suffers from imposter syndrome – something his 'team' have fostered for some unaccountable reason, well other than gaining control. That bit made me very angry on his behalf! He cannot believe he is going to meet his crush Brody – Brody whose boyfriend proposed at the final show where he won. Little does he know that Brody has been destroyed by his husband's behaviour and is about to finalise the divorce. Brody is at his lowest, and the show seemed like a good chance to get away from home for a while and lick his wounds.

I loved how these two men fought their way through the artificial world they were living in and made the effort to get a real chance at a happy future. I loved the backstage shenanigans and the final result... I am sure you will too!
